Somewhere between a lullaby and a dirge, Sontag Shogun takes their lullanoise and tries to find the strange, eery moments that exist within beauty.
Sontag Shogun is an ambient, electronic piano trio comprised of former members from [the] slowest runner [in all the world]. Pooling their influences from modern classical, improvised and ambient musical spheres, they create longform shape-shifting compositions that are at times lush and melodic as well as textural and unpredictable.
Two thirds of the band:Jeremy Young(field recordings, tapes, amplified surfaces) and Ian Temple(electronic piano) collaborated with Cellist Aaron Martin for their show at Pageant : Soloveev Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
This performance was part of the series called: Fire Museum Presents.
